Adam Ettenson has worked in real estate since 2004.

Adam's real estate experience encompasses residential sales, renovations, real estate development, property and asset management, and multifamily investment acquisitions. He has helped countless clients buy and sell property throughout the Bay Area, including in San Francisco, Marin County, Alameda County, San Mateo County, and Santa Clara County.

He has overseen the condo conversion and major renovation of a two-unit building, and has worked on several affordable housing residential development projects with budgets exceeding $20 million, helping low-income families secure safe, affordable housing. He is currently working on a project that entails adding a condo unit to an existing building as well as a major horizontal expansion and renovation, increasing the total square footage by approximately 1500 square feet.

Prior to working in real estate, Adam practiced immigration law and real estate law. His extensive background as an attorney and his broad real estate experience allow him to faithfully advance his clients' interests in both the purchase and sale of real estate. Adam's  clients benefit from strong negotiation skills, contractual expertise, and deep knowledge of local rules and regulations.

Adam’s unique experience and background have helped him see that it was time for a new approach, one where a real estate brokerage truly advances the interests of its clients, and this  led to his founding KASA Real Estate. He is passionate about real estate, and passionate about  making a positive impact on the community. Adam believes strongly that in taking a more ethical and engaged approach, with clients and the community, both ultimately benefit.

Adam moved to San Francisco with his family in 1978. He graduated from Oberlin College with a double degree in Spanish Literature and Latin American Studies, and received his JD from the University of San Francisco. He obtained his broker's license in 2004. He is fluent in Spanish, lived in Costa Rica and has traveled extensively throughout Mexico, Central, and South America, Europe, Israel, and India.  Adam is a homeowner in San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood, and he enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, playing soccer and coaching his daughters' soccer teams in his free time.
